Easter cupcakes

I felt in the mood to do some baking on Friday evening, and this morning I decorated these cupcakes.

I am not really "into" cupcakes, but thought I had better start making the effort and follow the trend.  So there are 18 normal size fairy cakes and 24 mini ones.  All lemon flavour - some of the larger ones have lemon curd in the middle of them.  Because my son has become dairy intollerant, they are all dairy free (apart from the chocolate eggs - he will just have to take those off!  The "buttercream" as well as being coloured yellow like  the sugarpaste, is flavoured with lemon oil too.

And here are some close-up photos - I will confess I am a little out of practise.

One of each sort
